New DROID commercial leaves you in suspense

New DROID commercial leaves you in suspense
"Exciting", "Leaves you in suspense", "5 stars out of 5". What sounds like reviews for the latest hit movie is actually describing the latest television ad for the Motorola DROID. Verizon and Motorola are not holding back when it comes to promoting the Android powered handset by using CGI and top notch SFX to keep you from changing the channels or running to the kitchen for a snack. Of course, there is no correlation between the excitement of a commercial and the quality of the handset being advertised. BGR has heard that this spot should start airing this week and as you probably know, Verizon will be launching the DROID on Friday.

"Of course, there is no correlation between the excitement of a commercial and the quality of the handset being advertised." Someone please elaborate. If I am reading this correctly it sounds like another jab at VZW and their handset lineup from the PA staff.

What is there to explain? This commericial is pretty awesome, but now I officialy think that they're trying too hard. What does this commericial have to do with the droid at all? Its a pretty tight commericial, I have to admit, but I think they are trying to max out on the "cool" factor way too much. This is probably going to get a lot of kids to say "oh this phone looks so cool, I have to go buy it."

If you don't get what this commercial has to do with the Droid there's no hope for you! People who couldn't give a hill of beans are seeing these commercials and running to the web or asking their friends about this phone. My 65 year old grandmother who has never owned a cellphone is suddenly interested in buying 1 after all the press the Droid is getting. That's the point of the commercial; to stir up interest!

okay...So I was right. And your grandmother is probably an extranality. I don't think when Motorola or Verizon (or both) were planning this commericial, they had grandparents as target consumers.

It's not a jab at Verizon at all, what it means is, the Droid doesn't appear to be all that it was hyped up to be. After reading many editors reviews, the Droid is somewhat of a disappointment. However I'm sure because of all the hype, sales will still be robust. We'll just have to wait and see what the actual users think once they get their hands on it. But I doubt it will end up being an Iphone killer, personally I've never had a quality Motorola phone, they seem to be buggy and don't last long.

EN, Please use your brain before responding to my initial post. I put a quote from PA, and then asked for someone to explain. If there are quotations around a sentence, or even a few words, then it means it was a quote. I understand the commercial, dumb-ass, its not quantum physics.

yea motorola actually paid for this commercial seeing as to how this is their first droid device. the droid was a joint venture between google and motorola. they both worked on this device as far as design and layout.

I saw the commercial last night on CBS, I believe it ran during "The Good Wife". Awesome ad and the phone seems pretty sweet too. Too bad Verizon's service sux in my area(Rural West Tennessee) or I'd definately try it out.

i think that was a pointless commercial and if i didn't know what the droid was, i wouldn't understand it...totally waste of money in my opinion. :-I

It is great marketing for a device, I think theres even a little sense in keeping it a secret and leaving everyone in suspense...Great marketing VZW!! The droid will rock!
